RED BULL FOXHUNT RETURNS TO ROSTREVOR WITH THREE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ELITE RIDERS

RED BULL FOXHUNT RETURNS TO ROSTREVOR WITH THREE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ELITE RIDERS

This October, Red Bull Foxhunt returns to the hills of Rostrevor for another year of mass-participation mountain biking with some of the worlds best riders. The 7th edition of the downhill mountain bike event will see over 550 riders take to the summit of Slieve Martin in an attempt to outrun three cunning foxes!


6-7 OCTOBER 2018 // SLIEVE MARTIN, ROSTREVOR, COUNTY DOWN

REGISTRATION OPENS 1 AUGUST AT 12 NOON



This years exclusive club of foxes is a pack of the worlds fastest bike riders, all bringing a unique blend of skill, speed and experience to the mix. Current World Champion, Loic Bruni, will make his second appearance at Red Bull Foxhunt. He will be joined by veteran fox, Gee Atherton and Irish rider and Red Bull athlete, Greg Callaghan.


Tackling 3.5km of treachourous downhill trails, over 550 riders will descend through open-mountain moorland, bone-shaking rock gardens and steep forest trails that are guaranteed to challenge even the most capable rider. Reaching speeds in excess of 60km/h, each rider will be battling to cross the line ahead of the three pursuing foxes! All three foxes will be held for a few seconds before the chase begins.


Speaking to RedBull.COM, Greg Callaghan said ahead of his first race as a fox,


“I’ve never been a fox before so I’m kind of scared! There are so many riders there and it’s at home so I’ll probably know half of them and I can’t be too mean to them! Anyone I take out will know exactly where to come to see me afterwards!”


The Dubliner won the event back in 2012 but some time has passed since then and he’s now risen to be one of the biggest names in the Enduro World Series, ranking third in the world during the 2017 season.


Registration for Red Bull Foxhunt will be open on 1 August at 12 noon at RedBull.ie/Foxhunt
